Marjorie Sue, a very girly and sporty third grader, isn’t a household name – yet. For that matter, neither is Rebecca Morgan the creator of the Marjorie Sue book series who will be launching her property at the licensing industry’s premiere event, Licensing Expo, June 21-23, 2016 in Las Vegas.

Rebecca Morgan was the first creator to sign up for and attend the latest International LIMA (Licensing Industry Merchandisers Association) Office Hours ‘meet and greet’ with Maura Regan, SVP & GM, International Media Business at Sesame Workshop. The mentoring session in NYC was very productive and Regan didn’t hesitate to share that she believes, “Marjorie Sue is fun and engaging and I am sure young children will be delighted by her quick wit and let nothing get in her way attitude.”

In addition, Morgan went out of her way (a nine-hour drive to be exact) to attend the LIMA Canada launch meeting last month in Toronto to get a jump on her industry networking with Charles M. Riotto, President LIMA and Martin Brochstein SVP, Industry Relations & Information at LIMA.

Marjorie Sue was created out of love and necessity by Rebecca Morgan for her daughter. The fictional character acted as a liaison to help her daughter learn to express herself. She brought laughter, comfort, encouragement and even discipline to their lives on a daily basis.

Morgan believes Marjorie Sue, her brother Jake and family, specifically fills the growing need for a more creative approach to the broad lessons covered in K-3 grade. By bringing back the hobby of building your own race car, she introduces core STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) topics and life skills seamlessly woven into a dozen captivating stories with luscious watercolor illustrations by Bea Balint.
If you are attending Licensing Expo, you can find Rebecca Morgan (and her daughter Leah) introducing Marjorie Sue in the character and entertainment zone at booth #C95.
